Section 2-10-31

Hearing on report of commissioner.

The State Board of Agriculture and Industries shall consider all facts relative to the report of the commissioner required by Section 2-10-30 in executive session; provided, that any person the board sees fit may be admitted to such session, but such person shall not disclose to the public the proceeding, unless otherwise ordered by said board. The board may summons and examine under oath witnesses, shall consider the facts contained in the report and may hear from any person interested in such association. If upon such hearing the board is of the opinion that the protection of the public interest requires the discontinuance of the operation of the association, or a change of management or that it should continue without change, the board shall issue such order as necessary to protect the public and members of such association, stating its reasons therefor.
